"Love is our greatest achievement. Don’t ever forget that. Don’t squander it. Seek it. Experience it. Savor it every day that you can, because you never know when a rogue wave might sweep you away"
"Here’s the thing about motherhood. It exhausts you and thrills you. It kicks you in the butt, and the very next second makes you feel like a superstar."
"No one gets to quit. You keep fighting, every day, and sooner or later, the grief fades a little. You grow stronger, find joy again, and everything gets easier. You come out of it more equipped to handle the next wave, which will come eventually. There will always be waves.”

I personally finished this book recently and I absolutely loved it! It was such a sweet romance. It was a story you will think about long after you finish it. And because I loved the characters, I had to pick out a deservedly swoon-worthy cast. I hope I did a good job!
